How Do You Keep Your Tree From Drying Out?: Well it's that time of year that I pull out my lumberjack roots, and share my extensive skills on how to cut down your Christmas…

Obviously, our beloved New England Patriots are not off to a great start on the season. We are sitting in last place in the AFC East, with a 1 and 3 record. Ouch. We lost our quarterback, Mac Jones, to a high ankle injury. Our long-time backup QB, Brian Hoyer suffered a head injury early in the game yesterday, and our 3rd string quarterback had never played in an NFL game before yesterday. That being said, there was promise in watching Bailey Zappe, an exciting rookie player. He managed to help get us to overtime, before the Pats ultimately suffered a 24-27 loss to the Packers in Green Bay.

It’s important to keep hope alive. So, chin up. The Patriots are back home this Sunday, taking on the Lions. Detriot is also off to a sloppy start, and share the same record as the Pats 1-3. So let’s go Patriots!

Let’s get our minds off the negative and focus on the positive, like the legions of fans we have here in New England, and by the way…Holllywood! Well, think about all the TV and movie stars who grew up here, or had Patriots family influences. Let’s take a look at some of the Patriots biggest fans, from Batman to Captain America, rock stars to country stars. Not all these celebs are from New England, as you will see.

 

  • 1. Scotty McCreery

    Scotty has long professed his love for our Pats! What’s a guy from North Carolina doing supporting a New England NFL team? It’s in his blood. His father is from the Kittery area of Maine, and instilled the love of New England sports into his son. We are so happy to see Scotty is passing his passion onto his family. From his dog to his unborn son.

    He fed his dog, Moose, on a healthy diet of Patriots football from just a young pup.

    Baby McCreery -to-be is getting a little extra help becoming a fan from the Kraft family.

    Baby’s first jersey!!!

  • 2. Ben Affleck

    Well, you knew this name was coming. We all know Jennifer Lopez’s new hubby grew up in Cambridge. We’ve seen him at many a Red Sox game. But, of course the Academy Award winning actor is also a Patriots fan. He has tried to pass on his love to his children, but as Ben Affleck told Jimmy Kimmel back in 2019, his son isn’t having it, because, “he’s from LA.” Fast forward this video to about 3:34 and see what Ben did to his son’s room. Side note: As you would expect, Ben’s good friend, and Good Will Hunting co-star/co-writer, and former Cambridge resident, Matt Damon is also a big Patriots fan.

  • 3. Elizabeth Banks

    The comedic actress and host of Press Your Luck also lives in a house divided. Banks grew up in Pittsfield, MA. She is one of 4 siblings, and her dad worked for GE, her mom worked in a bank, all of whom are Patriots fans.

     

  • 4. Chris Evans

    Captain America loves the Patriots. Chris Evans was born in Boston and grew up in Sudbury, MA. He is also from a big family of Patriots fans, one of 4 siblings of a denist dad and Concord Youth Theater artistic director mom! He even showed up in the Patriots locker room back in 2017.

  • Jon Bon Jovi

    You expect rocker Steven Tyler to be a Pats fan. He started his band in Boston. But Jon Bon Jovi is a Jersey boy, through and through. Over the years, his friendship with Patriots owner Robert Kraft has given him a sweet seat at games. He even gave the Pats permission to use a Bon Jovi song during games. You occasionnally hear “This is Our House” at Gillette Stadium. But as he shows in the Instagram post, he has been a fan for much longer.

     

     

  • 6. Mindy Kaling

    Like Ben, Mindy Kaling grew up in Cambridge. The Office actress also earned her degree at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. So, yeah…New England through and through. She has tried to instill her love of the Patriots to her daughter, but apparently it’s not working.

  • 7. John Krasinski

    Another actor from The Office has showed his love of his hometown team for many years. John Krasinski, another wicked smaht Pats fan, grew up in Newton, MA and went to Brown University in Providence. He posted this in 2017 ahead of the Super Bowl game.

  • Mark Wahlberg

    Growing up in Boston, Mark Walhlberg and his family have been big Boston sports fans forevah! His love of the Patriots is evident. He has been friends with the Krafts for quite some time.

  • Other Notable Names

    Here are a few more names you will likely recognize who have publicly shown The New England Patriots their love and support over the years: Leah Michele, Donnie Wahlberg (of course), Aly Raisman, Elton John, Paul Pierce, Maria Menounos, John Cena and Conan O’Brien.
